Managing the impact of Coronavirus

This is a challenging time for many companies.  Difficult decisions will need to be made but, as a long-term investor, we believe companies need take a balanced approach in their decision making. 

As a long-term investor we believe companies should take a balanced approach – and to understand the importance of supporting their employees, suppliers and other partners in the months to come.  

Running a business – and investing in them – is not about short-term returns.  Indeed, firms can destroy long-term value by making the wrong short-term decisions.  As a responsible investor we will support boards and management teams who reflect the long-term in their decision making.
